amd processor


Hi guy I am confused among amd processors which one to buy
fx series 6,8,4 core or A10 integrated system

System requirement:
for average Gaming
Must not make a lot of noise (due to heat)
must not hang while running virtual machines

desktop install
if you are using VM's then buy a i7 CPU
unless you want to move into the server intell xenon cpu

but if you are gaming in VM's
then buy and install TWO higher end Nvidia 3d cards
one for the host and one for the VM

Thanks for reply
I don't want to do gaming in VM's.

I was thinking to test AMD processor to test them and they are less costly than intel
and all reviews online are confusing.
Do Linux perform well on Amd as compared to intel.

in general you will get better amd for the same price.
Example: fx8320 with a video card you like.
You can look for comparisons here: http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/362...5_i5-4430.html
